Dr Jones did clarify what my best option was and that was IVF. But we chose IUI because it was affordable... was very compassionate to mine and my husbands needs. When we couldn't afford medication since our insurance didn't cover it, he donated it. That was a true blessing to us...He is a great listener and only wants to help others have a family...We took follistim injections for about a week every night at 6 pm, I got monitored every 3 days, then triggered when my follicles were of good size and came back in for IUI.

How was your experience with Gary Jones at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Dr Gary Jones was very compassionate to mine and my husbands needs. When we couldn't afford medication since our insurance didn't cover it, he donated it. That was a true blessing to us. Dr Jones made it clear that IVF was our best option but for my husband and I, it was very financially stressful. We'd love to do IVF now and would most certainly continue with Dr Jones if it became affordable.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gary Jones at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Ask all the questions you have and don't be afraid. He is a great listener and only wants to help others have a family. ♥️
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Gary Jones at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago?
Like a number because it was in and out and when I had questions I felt scared to ask cause I felt like I was bugging the nurses. Like a human cause Dr Jones did clarify what my best option was and that was IVF. But we chose IUI because it was affordable.
Describe the protocols Gary Jones used in your cycles at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago and their degree of success.
We took follistim injections for about a week every night at 6 pm, I got monitored every 3 days, then triggered when my follicles were of good size and came back in for IUI. During my IUI it was painful and the nurses had a hard time opening my uterus since it is retroverted. But they managed after several attempts both times.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago. (Assigned nurse: Chrissy)
I didn't really see my primary nurse too much. I mainly talked to her on the phone when I had questions and she was very educated with all the questions I had. The team of nurses were great. My only issue was the struggle getting my uterus open when it was time for the IUI.
Describe your experience with Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
Their strength is the knowledge they all posses. They are very informative. The weakness is when a patient, such as I, call alot with questions and you can start to hear and feel a slight aggravation in their tone or response. I know dealing with woman trying to get pregnant can be stressful cause it is for the woman trying, but we are fragile and sensitive during this time and only want answers. Just keep in mind that everyone is trying to help during the process and don't give up. Have patience. ♥️🙏😊
Describe the costs associated with your care under Gary Jones at Advanced Fertility Center of Chicago.
Our IUIs were covered by our insurance but we did have 20% out of pocket costs and we had to pay for the medications as well.

I felt he [Dr. Jones] was a good doctor and we had 2 successful pregnancies with him...Nothing was pre-planned, it was all based on how I was responding to the meds both times. I got 18 eggs at my retrieval, all fertilized, the best 2 were a fresh transfer day 3. 7 more embryos made it to day 5 and were frozen. I had one failed frozen cycle 2 years later-birth control, lupron and vaginal estrace. 2 months after that tried only oral estrace and had a successful frozen cycle.

How was your experience with Gary Jones at Michigan Comprehensive Fertility Center?
First time we met he told me I was the "best case scenario" only issue seemed to be blocked tubes. Everything-testing, medications, procedures went as described. Had a successful fresh transfer of 2 embryos and a successful transfer of a frozen embryo 2 years later. Always professional.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Gary Jones at Michigan Comprehensive Fertility Center?
I felt he was a good doctor and we had 2 successful pregnancies with him. Scheduling appointments was not an issue.

I never felt rushed in appointments with him. He was always informative and answered all my questions. Good personality.
Describe the protocols Gary Jones used in your cycles at Michigan Comprehensive Fertility Center and their degree of success.
Stimulation for egg retrieval. Had daily ultrasound and blood work. When my follicles were a certain size the retrieval was scheduled for the next day. Nothing was pre-planned, it was all based on how I was responding to the meds both times. I got 18 eggs at my retrieval, all fertilized, the best 2 were a fresh transfer day 3. 7 more embryos made it to day 5 and were frozen. I had one failed frozen cycle 2 years later-birth control, lupron and vaginal estrace. 2 months after that tried only oral estrace and had a successful frozen cycle.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Michigan Comprehensive Fertility Center.
Always called with every result, were very organized and always kept in close contact with my doctor for everything. Any question the would answer or get answered for me immediately. Very compassionate in a delicate situation.
Describe your experience with Michigan Comprehensive Fertility Center.
Easy to make appointments with, early times available to work with work schedules. Always very clean and organized. Ultrasound techs were very kind and professional and informative. Office staff were always professional and helpful with scheduling. Everyone was beyond excited to see our children after they were born and asked us to send pictures. We always felt like we were more than just a number.
Describe the costs associated with your care under Gary Jones at Michigan Comprehensive Fertility Center.
$20,000 including medications, ultrasounds, retrieval and fresh transfer. About $4,000 (each transfer) for meds and transfer for the 2 frozen transfers. Only thing covered by insurance was lab draws and some of the ultrasounds.
Describe Gary Jones's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Michigan Comprehensive Fertility Center.
On my first transfer, he recommended 2 be transferred for higher success rates, however, he gave the option to only transfer one. I had no complications with the pregnancy until I had premature rupture of membranes and my twins were born at 31 weeks. When we went for the frozen cycle, it was suggested to transfer only one embryo due to my previous preterm delivery although gave the option to transfer 2 if we wanted.
